Dark cold brew coffee meets bittersweet smoky rhubarb in the refreshing Brhubarb (“Brew-barb”) Swizzle. A bright botanical rhubarb gin adds appealing complexity, with lemon, a touch of honey and almond syrup balancing the deep roasted coffee.

The inspiration for this cocktail did not start with the name. The name came afterwards when I realized it was a fun play on words that magically made sense with the ingredients! Instead, I was simply inspired to work with flavors I thought would be unique and maybe a bit unexpected. I believe the outcome is a refreshing cocktail anyone would enjoy. You may just find it hard to only have one. Cheers!



 1 oz Rhubarb Gin(Ha’Penny)
 0.75 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 0.50 oz Zucca Rabarbaro
 0.75 oz Lemon Juice
 0.50 oz Honey syrup (2:1)
 0.25 oz Orgeat



Combine the gin, Mr. Black, amaro, lemon juice, honey syrup and orgeat in a large tin.


Add a small amount of crushed or pebble ice to the ingredients and whip shake (about 8 seconds).


Open pour into a chilled highball glass, and top off with more crushed/pebble ice.


Grate a coffee bean over top, and garnish with a thin lemon wheel.


Enjoy, then repeat steps 1-4.


(Note: if you choose, feel free to add ingredients to a chilled highball, then add your ice and swizzle it the traditional way.)
